View Full Version : Problem with RSSticker not showing on website...

10-10-2008, 01:23 PM
1) Script Title: rssticker.js

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/rsstickerajax/index.htm

3) Describe problem: It won't load on my site. I can get it to work on my localhost fine, but live it is just shows "initilizing ticker". I'm assuming my paths are wrong, but I can't seem to get it right.

Why would it work on the localhost, but not on a live site?

I put all the files on the root level of the server, hopefully allowing no problems with the path. But now I get an error message for each feed:

Error fetching remote RSS feed!
Sorry: It's not possible to reach RSS file

I don't know why that would be. Any suggestions?


Here are the scripts and paths I have set up:


// -------------------------------------------------------------------
// Advanced RSS Ticker (Ajax invocation) core file
// Author: Dynamic Drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)
// -------------------------------------------------------------------

//Relative URL syntax:
var lastrssbridgeurl="http://www.thecassidyfeed.com/bridge.php"

////////////No need to edit beyond here//////////////


// include lastRSS
include "lastRSS.php"; //path to lastRSS.php on your server from this script ("bridge.php")

// Create lastRSS object
$rss = new lastRSS;
$rss->cache_dir = 'cache'; //path to cache directory on your server from this script. Chmod 777!
$rss->date_format = 'M d, Y g:i:s A'; //date format of RSS item. See PHP date() function for possible input.

Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic script so we can check it out.

My guess is your web host has fopen() disabled in PHP, which is required by the RSS parsing portion of this script in order to work. Check to see if:


inside php.ini on your server.
